Chairman Businessman Group (BMG) & Former President Karachi Chamber of Commerce and Industry (KCCI) Siraj Kassam Teli, has appreciated the Prime Minister for taking business and industrial community’s input on numerous issues and immediately directing the relevant Ministers to take measures for creating an enabling business environment as per aspirations of the business & industrial community.
Siraj Teli said that KCCI’s delegation expressed deep concerns over Gas Infrastructure Development Cess (GIDC) issue which remains unresolved to date and also stressed that Sindh has the first right on its gas reserves under Article 158 of the Constitution of Pakistan.
“Therefore, the gas being produced in Sindh should at first be supplied to the province and after fulfilling the requirement of Sindh, surplus gas should be passed on to other provinces in line with Article 158 of Pakistan’s Constitution”, he added.
He welcomed PM’s directives to Finance Minister Asad Umer who was asked to hold a meeting with business community so that GIDC, uninterrupted gas supply to industries at required gas pressure, RLNG issue and judicious distribution of gas to Sindh as per Article 158 could be extensively discussed and steps could accordingly be taken to minimize the hardships being faced by Karachi’s business community.
